WE DID IT! $50,000 RAISED AS OF 11/22/2013
On December 30th, at 5:00PM Eastern Time I'll draw one donor at random and that donor will get not only the Lifetime LOTRO Account, but 2 passes to E3 2014, The Electronic Entertainment Expo in LA. (Passes only, you must provide transportation, meals, hotel).
If you donated more than once and each donation was at least $5, I'll consider that multiple entries to this drawing. So even if you've given before, you can kick in another few bucks to improve your odds!
If you're among my family and friends who do not play LOTRO, ignore everything below this point. Just know I greatly appreciate your support. More than words can say.
Thank you for caring for our kids!
NOTE: PLEASE LEAVE AN EMAIL ADDRESS SO I CAN SEND APPROPRIATE 'THANK YOU' NOTES AND ANY INCENTIVES YOU EARN!! No Email = No way to contact you.
Due to some individuals who donated pennies (literally) last year, I'm setting a $5 donation floor to qualify for any incentives(unless otherwise noted).

-In Game Title: The Sociable
All title codes are sent AFTER Dec 2, unless otherwise noted.
